If you mean the login password when you start your PC.

(I found this)

Follow the steps below:

Step 1
Put your windows 7 operating system CD into your CD-Rom drive and start your computer.

Step 2
Choose the specified key to run from the CD. In most cases, a message will appear which instructs you to "Press any key to boot from CD."

Step 3
Wait for Setup to check your system and load the appropriate files. A message will appear indicating this action.

Step 4
Press "Enter" to setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement, then choose the "Repair" option on the Setup screen.

Step 5
Allow the Repair function to complete its process. It may takes a few minutes for Setup to copy all of your files. Wait for the computer to reboot. Usually a message appears indicating that the computer will reboot in 10 to 15 seconds. Refrain from pressing any keys after the computer starts again. The computer will reboot automatically.

Step 6
Watch the bottom left corner of your screen for the "Installing Devices" message. Press "Shift + F10" when you see this. A command console will appear allowing for access to a number of system functions.

Step 7
Type "NUSRMGR.CPL" and press "Enter" after the prompt. This will give you graphical access to the User Accounts in your Control Panel.

Step 8
Select the account that needs to be changed and alter your password or remove it altogether. Type "control userpasswords2" if you want to log on without using a password. Close the windows and exit the command console. Enter your Product ID when prompted.

Step 9
Log on to your system according to the new password option you chose in Step 8. This process does not damage your previously saved files and settings, so they should still be intact.

I just bought my laptop yesterday, made a password, and now have forgotten it help!

always sounds like a stolen laptop....people DON'T generally forget the password they use...sounds fishy to me.

If it's a brand new laptop, call the tech support and be ready to give them your serial number and receipt number so they can help you.

Absolutely amazing... the first thing you do when you use a password is write it down (especially if the unit is new). I have a tendency to agree with XpUser4Real!
